My family of four a great stay at Cabanas Pura Vida. It was a very clean, quiet, and well run B&B. Air conditioning was a bonus The owners did a great job of setting us up with excursions for snorkeling and touring the National Park.

The place was managed by a very helpful and friendly couple. The place was clean and the breakfast was great. Only four minutes walking distance to the beach. I would definitely choose the same place if I go back!
